Be inspired to think differently about how you engage with youth belonging to underrepresented communities.
The MacKenzie Art Gallery is pleased to welcome poet Randell Adjei to Regina to conduct a series of workshops in conjunction with our current theatre program, featuring Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca’s film RISE.
Randell Adjei is an Author, Inspirational Speaker, Arts Educator and Community Leader who uses the spoken word to empower and transform through ‘Edutainment’. He is the founder of one of Toronto’s largest and longest running youth led initiatives; Reaching Intelligent Souls Everywhere (R.I.S.E Edutainment).
Along with being the founder and lead facilitator of R.I.S.E, Randell is a MaRS (Medical and Related Sciences) Studio Fellow, as well as a coach involved in the Toronto Public Library’s Poetry Saved Our Lives project. Randell has been a featured performer on TEDxUTSC (University of Toronto Scarborough Campus) and has shared stages with the likes of Jessie Reyez, Terry Crews, Paul Mooney, Maestro Fresh Wes and D’bi Young.
Randell tours nationally speaking to arts and elementary school educators about empowering racialized youth, with a particular focus on communicating and supporting racialized boys and young men.
This workshop will explore different engagement methodologies for youth through spoken word and creative expression.
In partnership with the Museums Association of Saskatchewan.
